Pour the recommended amount of water, according to the instant coffee package's directions. The water should be on the cool side so the mixture can be whipped into a fluffy texture. This will take a few minutes with a hand whisk but can be a quicker process with a hand mixer.
Once the coffee is done being whipped, pour milk into a separate cup. Ice can be added if desired.
With a spoon, gently scoop the whipped coffee into the cup of milk. The mixture should not be submerged.
